Since we are at the testing stage at the moment I will try this out as
soon as I find time to do it. The logging thing wouldn't bother me since
we do logging remotely via syslog. What I havent't tried out so far is
setting up a machine from scratch using raid and lvm though ... I built
my own set of boot-disks to get the hardware supported initially, so
this might also be resolveable ...

Thx for the advice.
